Tech4Learning’s Wixie is now available in the Apple App store for the iPad.  The new Wixie app takes advantage of the iPad’s touch interface, while connecting to storage, classroom management, portfolio, and assessment tools in the cloud.

Wixie iPad AppWixie is an authoring tool students can use to paint pictures, write stories, and record their voice to explore the curriculum and demonstrate mastery. Projects are automatically stored in the cloud, making it easy to distribute a URL and passkey for to share Wixie projects with family and the community.

 “We are working to make Wixie available to as many users as possible. With the large number of iPads in use at home and the growing 1:1 initiatives that use iPads, having an app for this device is essential to our goal of providing powerful tools and a wide audience for student work,” explains David Wagner, CEO of Tech4Learning.

“I have been a long time fan and user of Pixie and love how we can create the same projects online with Wixie,” shares Katy Hammack, a 3rd grade teacher in Santee, California. “Now with the Wixie iPad app, students will be able to work on assignments and digital stories on their iPads, classroom laptops, or computers at home, allowing us to enable anytime, anywhere learning.”
